When I first started listening to Houdini, my friend Ghada immediately pointed out the similarities between it and MGMT’s “Electric Feel”—and then quickly pointed out that it was actually better. While I am not sure if it beats MGMT’s iconic single, it is certainly one of the more charming uses of synthpop I have heard in a while.

French electro-house musician and remixer Vitalic has quite a history of good music and remixes under his belt, and this more upbeat version of a href=”http://www.myspace.com/amadouandmariam” target=”_blank”>Amadou & Mariam’s Sabali is no exception to his works. The electro comes in strong in this remix, and the beat even stronger.

Sounding like a mixture between Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and She & Him—with possibly a dash of a Generationals song—“Egg on a Sea” by Cotton Jones is one of those unique songs that, much like aforementioned bands, you want to listen to on sunny days with a lovely beverage in hand.

Tim Goldsworthy (working under the name of Thee Loving Hand) has made quite a name for himself producing a number of albums and co-founding DFA Records with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy. Having worked with the electronic genre for quite some time, it should come as no surprise just how elegantly crafted this remix of Cut Copy’s “Take Me Over” is. It weighs in at a hefty nine minutes of pure electro-dance, with a full minute of outro beats.
